In Los Angeles, U.S. District Judge Carmac J. Carney dropped charges against members of the nationalist Rise Above Movemment (RAM) for violations of the 1968 Anti-Riot act on the grounds the act and its application in the case is too unconstitutionally broad (archived). The three men were charged with travelling with intent to riot and conspiracy to commit rioting for their attendance at a 2017 free speech rally that turned violent with the arrival of combatant antiFa activists. Carney determined the activity charged under the law was too far removed from the start of the violence and rioting for the Anti-Riot act to be consitutionally relevant.
Each charge carried a potential 5 year prison sentence. One other RAM member was charged, but they fell for the plea bargain scam. Four other RAM members similarly fell for the plea bargain scam in a another 2017 case.
